1. With psalms and hymns and holy songs,
Lift up your hearts unto the Lord,
To His great Name all power belongs,
Through Him the Father is adored.
Lord, as we worship, make us see
God manifest on earth in Thee!

2. By Him we in thanksgiving raise
The offering from our harvest store,
Through Him speeds down the Spirit's grace,
His Light Divine therein to pour.
Grand, Lord, whene'er Thy death we shew,
We may Thy sacred Presence know!

3. In Him and in His love alone,
That brought Him from the highest down,
Is wisdom true for aye forth shewn,
Doth love receive its highest crown.
Grant, Lord, we may that wisdom know,
A love like Thine to all to shew!
